The Kyoto Main Store has reopened after months of renovation. Please note that the tearoom is still undergoing renovations and will be closed until winter 2023. In the renovated, reopened shopping area, you can get takeout tea and a regular selection of teas is available for purchase.

Our main store in Kyoto is where the Ippodo story began in 1717. This shop is located near the old Imperial Palace grounds, on Teramachi Street, which runs north and south through the center of Kyoto. It’s a walkable neighborhood, with boutiques and antique shops, bakeries, and small eateries nearby. Walk five minutes to the east, and you’ll arrive at the Kamogawa river park. Head south, and you’ll find the Teramachi shopping arcade. Head north, and you’ll arrive at the wide Imperial Palace grounds park with plenty of space to stretch out.

After months of renovation, the shopping area of our main store is now reopened. with a redesigned interior that stays true to the original feel of this location. There, customers can choose from our wide selection of teas and utensils. Our attentive staff is on hand to explain about Japanese teas, answer your questions, and give curated recommendations, whether you’re shopping for yourself or for the perfect gift or souvenir. After making a selection, grab some tea-to-go to enjoy while you explore the neighborhood.

The tearoom area of the store is still being renovated and will be closed until winter 2023. Though the tearoom is unavailable, we hope you’ll still take the time to visit us in Kyoto to experience our newly designed space. When you visit, you’ll find our staff eager to help you enjoy Japanese tea, whether it’s your first taste or your thousandth.

Ippodo Tea New York

(Temporarily Closed)

From its opening in the spring of 2013, the Ippodo New York Store played a crucial role in connecting so many customers to the joys of Japanese tea, as Ippodo's sole location outside of Japan.

This location closed on September 18th, 2022, but currently we are making preparations to establish a new outpost in New York City. The opening of the new location will be broadly announced on this website and on Ippodo social media accounts. Until then, we eagerly await the day when we can greet you at the new New York Store!
